EDITOR'S REVIEW

Overall Editor's Rating

What It Is

Thomas & Friends Fast Train, Slow Train is a re-telling of the classic fable The Tortoise and the Hare with favorite train engine characters. James and Edward both have to go to Ballahoo. Edward is slow and careful, while James is fast and proud. James teases Edward about being slow, but Edward proves that taking one's time has its advantages. As a Bright and Early Book, this picture book uses humor, rhythm, and limited vocabulary to encourage preschoolers to read for themselves.

Who It’s For
